SansAmp RBI
The 1U rackmount SansAmp RBI is a pumped-up, expanded version of our popular SansAmp Bass Driver DI pedal. In addition to Drive, Presence, and active Bass and Treble controls, the SansAmp RBI has a dedicated Mid control and an XLR Output Level control for optimum performance with PA systems. It also features an Effect Loop with a Mix 50/50 switch (for parallel or series operation), an XLR output with selectable levels, and a buffered direct XLR output to provide a dry signal. Include access to the most coveted classic and modern bass tones, with unlimited freedom to create your own, and the SansAmp RBI is practically mandatory for any bass player.

EXCEPTIONAL FLEXIBILITY


Armed with a truckload of bass amp rigs in a single rackspace, you can travel as heavy or light as you like:

  • Show up at any studio with just a SansAmp RBI and plug directly into the board
    for premium tones without miking.
  • Gig with the SansAmp RBI directly through the house PA without using a separate amp.
  • Go to a gig with a SansAmp RBI, a Bass Power Engine 60 (see optional accessories below)
    and run directly through the house P.A. system.
  • Take a more "traditional" set-up to a gig with a SansAmp RBI, power amp and
    speaker cabinet, and run directly through the house P.A. system.
